Sony unveils Xperia Tablet Z: 10.1-inch quad-core super-thin water-resistant tablet
Today Sony has made a bit of a soft announcement
of their next-generation hero tablet, that being the Xperia Tablet Z:
complete with a quad-core processor and a rather thin body. This machine
is just about as strait up rectangular a tablet as we’ve ever seen with
extremely tight (but not quite square) corners and what appears to be a
slightly odd aspect ratio bezel around its 10.1-inch display. The Sony
Xperia Tablet Z is also set to bring on none other than Sony’s own
“S-Force” virtual surround sound system – strange stuff!
This tablet is set to come in at least two color
combination – on the back, anyway – and it’ll be coming with no less
than the excellent Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 quad-core SoC clocked in
at 1.5GHz. This will be paired with 2GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity (and
a wi-fi only edition we must assume) as well as an 8.1-megapixel camera
on the back. This back-facing camera works with Exmore R technology and
will likely be a star in Sony’s promotion of the unit overall.
The display on this machine is not quite as massively dense with pixels as the Google Nexus 10,
but it’s tight nonetheless: 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution working with
Mobile Bravia Engine 2 technology – we’ll see soon what kind of display
it is, be it IPS or AMOLED – with the jumps we’re seeing here over
previous model Xperia tablets, there’s no knowing what the Sony team is
bringing forth. This tablet also works with NFC, has a microSD card slot
for memory expansion, and the whole package is both waterproof and
dustproof (though the exact amount of both we’re still waiting on, too).
Inside the machine you’ll find a 6,000mAh battery and the whole unit
will be coming in at a super thin 6.9mm and 495g in weight. This machine
is a rather large leap forward for Sony from any of their previous
tablets – have a peek at our recent review of the Tegra 3-toting Xperia Tablet S to see how far the company has come in a relatively short time.
